"For all the fine ensembles that call Boston home, one of the most accomplished has to be the Charlie Kohlhase Quintet, a one-of-a-kind band that made an exuberant appearance over the weekend..."
[Chicago Tribune, 1995]

Originally from Portsmouth NH, alto/tenor/bari sax man Charlie Kohlhase made the leap to Boston in the early 1980's. After a few years of composing his own free jazz work, he formed The Charlie Kohlhase Quintet (CKQ) in 1989, in order to better realize his uncanny, oftentimes playful, pieces. Word travelled fast, since this particular unique combo of then local players ... Kohlhase joined by John Carlson (trumpet/flugelhorn), John Turner (bass), Matt Langley (tenor/soprano sax), and Matt Wilson (drums) ... performed jaw dropping performances both locally and nationally. CKQ disbanded after a dozen years, leaving in their wake four albums, all highly acclaimed: Research & Development (Accurate Records, 1992), Good Deeds (Accurate, 1992), Dart Night (Accurate, 1995), and Dancing On My Bedpost (CIMP, 1998) [Full Charlie Kohlhase discography at http://www.charliekohlhase.com/page3/page3.html].

Since then each player has carved out his own stellar niche in the jazz world, locally, nationally, and internationally. It may very well be impossible to predict what will take place during this reunion of highly respected jazz musicians. The only way to really know is to check them out ... in real time!

"As a mainstay in Boston's jazz scene, saxophonist Charlie Kohlhase has helped cultivate the city as one of America's most fertile hotbeds for creative music." (Jazz Times, 1999)
